Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard has decided to step down as a member of the Southern Door School Board. The Southern Door County School District is now seeking applicants to fill the vacancy. Superintendent Patti Vickman says Sternard’s resignation letter stated that it was a difficult decision and she felt it was in the best interest of both the school district and then her new role at the Door County Sheriff’s office, with having a new resource officer in the district, to keep those two interests separate. Vickman explains the policy for the application process.
Vickman said the school is appreciative of Sternard’s long tenure on the school board including serving as president. The next meeting is scheduled for June 17. The new board member would serve through April of 2020.
